I love crockpots almost as much as the weekend

This weekend I plan on doing as much NOTHING as humanly possible.

This morning started off like every friday morning, I hit snooze 3 times.  Then I remembered that I have 3 extra things to do before leaving for work (snooze was a bad idea)...needless to say I was slightly late. But thankfully traffic was nonexistent so my normal LONG drive was about 10 minutes shorter more reasonable (a nice little start to the weekend). 

Today I promised Brent pulled pork for dinner.  I attribute his addiction to it to our trip to Florida and Christime's amazing pulled pork that she made.  I believe it was the size of my head before she started. I will not be making that much since it is just for the two of us.  And I talked him in to letting me make roasted broccoli as the side (and baked beans).  What a delicious summer meal. 

I want to add the picture of Christine
and I holding the pork together,
But my computer is not working
correctly (SHOCKER).  I will add
it in this space later for you to enjoy!

My recipie for it was so easy...

1.5 lbs. pork loin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large onion
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup light beer

Cook in crockpot for 8-9 hours on low.  This is why I love crockpots. 

Other than pulled pork sammys, my only other plans this weekend are do normal errands that I have put off for weeks, go see my little sisters swim meet, and hopefully lounge at the pool. All easy stuff!  Oh, and sleep in!

And this my friends, is the perfect friday night after many weeks months of absolute craziness!
